MURDER-MYSTERY. Adapted from the short story by Agatha Christie. Famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot receives a letter from Miss Amelia Barrowby requesting his assistance with a delicate, private matter. However, before Poirot can meet with Miss Barrowby, she is found dead. Inspector Sims informs Poirot that Miss Barrowby died of strychnine poisoning, but here lies the conundrum: If everyone in the house ate the same meal, why is it that only Miss Barrowby was poisoned? Poirot deduces there’s a mouse in the house, but what move must the cat make next? With Poirot’s friend Captain Arthur Hastings away, Poirot must call on his persnickety personal secretary Miss Lemon to assist him with the case. Easy to stage.
